Spatial Responses of Gunnison Sage-Grouse to Climate and Land-Use Change in the Colorado Plateau


August 2012 - December 2014


We propose to explore climate and land-use change effects on Gunnison sage-grouse in the Colorado Plateau. We will employ statistical analyses, ecological and simulation models based on animal locations, remotely sensed vegetation, and gridded climate variables. We will produce maps and quantitative assessments of habitat suitability and connectivity that are directly applicable to natural resource management.
